The KSM42/SG Side-Address Condenser Vocal Microphone from Shure is a condenser microphone that features a dual-diaphragm capsule, a tailored frequency response, and extensive pop filtering at the inside and outside of the capsule's grille.

Its Prethos Advanced Preamplifier technology delivers transparent audio quality, and smooth proximity control over an ultra-wide dynamic range. Its cardioid polar pattern minimizes off-axis noise and feedback while maintaining a smooth frequency response.
